GlassFish Adoption Trends - Rumors? No! Just Easter
By pelegri on May 02, 2009
I track the GlassFish Adoption Trends so when I noticed a drop last month I assumed it was related to the IBM Rumor and the Oracle Announcement. But the drop became a dip (Google, archive; Indeed, archive) and, on more careful inspection this seems to be a seasonal effect, probably Easter.
The preliminary download numbers for the month show similar data, a bit less than the record-breaking March but strong general growth.
Finally, on the sales side, Slide 5 in the Q3FY09 Results shows 101% Y/Y growth for Middleware + MySQL. We do not provide additional data but annecdotally I know of deals that have accelerated on the latest news, not slowed down.
Overall, all the indicators are good. We have a great team and we are working very well together (like that other great team) and we are looking forward to our future challenges.
